What materials did you use? I used a 24X24 packing paper folded in half to make my measurement markings on, dritz styling design ruler, tape measure, blue cloth marking pencil, scissors to cut out the shape after I connected the dots..note* I bent my elbow as I was measuring the elbow area to give me some wiggle room & it also helped me to see the outside seam to walk my pattern for the fit of the bodice back pattern.

What are you most proud of? as I walked the sloper on my tissue pattern bodice the sleeve came within a 5/8" at the top of the cap..

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can do it!

I have a long arm & a short bicep area..I think I will use this sleeve sloper instead of the original Vogue tissue pattern for on my muslin fit, after I had already shortened the Vogue tissue pattern in the cap area, this sloper doesn't need alterations..
